Ubisoft Ditches Manuals To Save Trees

Ah, the memories of ripping open a brand new game and flipping through the game manual. It is a feeling that many gamers can relate to. It’s especially true for manuals for role playing games, which always seem to have the thickest manuals of all. 

No, I don't have better things to reminisce about...

Two villains for Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 are leaked

When Batman: Arkham Asylum was announced, or rather teased, back in December one question immediate sprung in everyone’s mind.  The big question was “Which adversaries from Batman’s prolific Rogues Gallery would appear in the sequel?”  The first game had a decent roster but to some it was a bit tiny, especially given the scope of the game.  Besides a few enemies being hinted at in the teaser trailer, we now have some confirmations on some villains thanks to actors not shutting their yaps.

The Daleks are back in Doctor Who: The Adventure Games [Video]

Over the years the one constant adversary of Doctor Who has been the iconic Daleks. Things like having their home world destroyed and then getting obliterated after two major resurrections aren’t big deals for the Daleks. Somehow just like all things in life the Daleks find a way to survive.

2K announces XCOM revival

It’s kind of past my bedtime and all I want to do is go to bed. But alas out of nowhere 2K Games had to announce a revival of XCOM for the Xbox 360 and PC and now I'm busy.  Labeled a “re-imagining” of the cult franchise, the XCOM revival is of course an fps game. What else would it be given how things are this generation?

Splinter Cell: Conviction Readies Its Launch This Week

Extended Crysis 2 trailer features beautiful visuals and alien mayhem

On early Wednesday a brief teaser trailer for Crysis 2 was released. Doing what teaser trailers are meant to do, this quick look at Crysis 2 left us yearning for more.  Well like clockwork a full length Crysis 2 trailer has been released and once again it’s a “holy sh!t” moment.

Starting off a bit slow, but still beautiful to look at, this extended trailer eventually gives us what we want: aliens tearing stuff up.  The alien mayhem is kept to a minimum but still looked amazing especially since that was only a standard encounter of sorts.

F.E.A.R. 3 gets a live action trailer

I kind of miss the good old days when game announcements would come with a nice Press Release and a trailer. These days’ most game announcements are made in installments, often with certain sites getting “exclusive” screens or trailers.  That tactic is understandable since it builds the hype for a project. More importantly it means that fools such as me will cover these updates thus fulfilling my role of being a cog in a massive PR machine.
